Biden Administration Releases National Cybersecurity Strategy

“Government Technology” reports, the Biden Administration’s National Cybersecurity Strategy, released Thursday, “is shifting more responsibility to the software developers to lock down their systems and prevent cyber intrusions.” A related statement by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas points to his department’s success in responding to transportation industry cybersecurity incidents; emphasizes the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency’s (CISA) mandate to modernize its networks; and calls on Congress to “codify DHS’s Cyber Safety Review Board (CSRB), a public-private partnership through which cyber leaders from the federal government and private sector conduct fact-finding and issue recommendations in the wake of significant cyber incidents.”

The New York Times and Axios also report on the newly released strategy.
